New Lipo shipping regulations
« on: June 28, 2012, 01:42:51 PM »
I'm sure most of you know this by now, but here you go.



NOTICE: Effective May 16, 2012 the Postal Service? Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Serves, listed in the Domestic Mail Manual section 601.10.20, codify that primary lithium metal, lithium polymer, lithium alloy (non-rechargeable) cells and batteries or secondary lithium-ion cells and batteries (rechargeable) are prohibited when mailed internationally to or from an APO, FPO, or DPO location. Until such time that a less restrictive policy can be implemented consistent with international standards, and in accordance with UPU (Universal Postal Union) HobbyPartz will not ship lithium batteries that are not permitted in international mail in addition to Alaska and Hawaii.

The Department of Transportation?s (DOT) regulation for shipping Lithium batteries has taken notice of the additional hazard material handling in which HobbyPartz opt to act accordingly. This will prevent any express shipments listed by the suppliers above from shipping UPS and USPS 1 day and 2 day air. This does not include shipments involved within the continental United States by USPS or UPS ground.

I've heard by a few people that you can't even pick them up in the States and bring them across the border.

Cool; HobbyKing ships out of Europe. I guess that's aloud. It's just the US/Canada border
